About that big police response and helicopter on Capitol Hill earlier “suspect then went victim’s vehicle and drove it to 5th and G Streets SE where the vehicle’s controls proved too cumbersome”

From MPD:

“1D officers and detectives are currently on the scene investigating a Robbery that occurred today at about 2:15 PM where a vehicle was taken in the 500 block of G St SE. The suspect approached the victim and demanded his car keys. The suspect then went to the victim’s vehicle and drove it to the intersection of 5th and G Streets SE where the vehicle’s controls proved too cumbersome and the suspect fled. A significant patrol response with support from our police helicopter and an observant citizen led to the apprehension of the offender.

While this case has been closed with an arrest, our detectives will continue to work to ensure a successful prosecution is made by the Office of the Attorney General. If you have any relevant information about this or any other case, please call in a tip to 202-727-9099 or anonymously text 50-411.”
